I think society is getting terrible and I feel so bad that my children will be growing up in todays society. With everything going on its so hard to get them to understand that their parents only want the best for them!

Understand how you feel. All parent would like to give them the best and want them to be the best. I think of that too. But, I do not really emphasize that to them. I always want them to do their best, always remember that they are lots of help needy people around. I want them to be good in character which is the most important. I always remind them that.

I agree. I just dont like how their friends have so much persuasion on them, that is the worst thing. I just hope my kids will trust me, obey me, and understand me. Them growing up scares me as sad as it may sound!

Yeah you're right, our society had been corrupted and not a safer place anymore as it used to be. We should apply a "hands on" policy in raising our children. We should keep our eyes on them so that we could advice them and teach them properly in their growing years. This is the most important period in the development of a child. If we could give them the proper guidance and teaching, I think they will remember and carry it until they grew up. Remember also to give freedom to the children in an extent that they could still do whatever they wanted (playing and other stuff). Sometimes they feel that we are over protecting them which can lead to their rebellion.

Every parent want their kids to best in the world but we are not the superior to decide their future and it is all in the hands of good though we give him good respect and though we give him the perfect methods of becoming a gentleman it is all in their hands to decide what they want to be and the surroundings where he brought up and the friends with whom he played and shared all the sad and happiness. In nowadays situation every one are very smart and wants to grow fast in fields of carrier even though if they need to betray others they never care for the good and what they are doing.
